* NightmareFuel: the little girl in the burning house.
* {{Padding}}: Most of the scenes involving the firefighters have little, if anything, to do with the main plot of the film, and seem there only to pad out what is at its core an hour-long TV movie to a two-hour theatrical release.

* NightmareFuel: the The little girl in the burning house.
** This is particularly nightmarish when you know the whole context. Her parents believe that their daughter is safely at a friend's house and plead with the firefighters to save their house. Then a young girl, the friend whose house the daughter was supposed to be at, runs over, horribly distraught and calling her friend's name. The father asks where his daughter is, clearly expecting her to have been right beside her friend, and the friend explains that not only had the daughter gone home but she had just been talking to her on the phone. [[AdultFear Small wonder the father tries to run inside the house.]]

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: Two of them actually. Catherine appears to be a long suffering wife who does all the work around the house, while her husband Caleb is a slacker who works 24 hours and rests 48. They also depict him as having "rejected" God, and fallen prey to the evils of adultery through pornography. This seems to be the message shown by the film. Actually, from the events, Catherine is a cold merciless jerk who doesn't bother to consider that he needs food too (she doesn't buy groceries either), who looks critically on his pornography while she actively carries out an affair, and can't see what is being done for her while he is trying to fix things. Meanwhile, Caleb his given up a computer (which, by the way, can hold pictures of her in addition to uses other than porn), worked tirelessly without any appreciation, and gave expensive medical equipment using his boat savings. Even before, when he was supposedly "rejecting" God, he stood in support of his Christian friend's choices, saved lives everyday, and whose only real issue was that he was angry and didn't help around the house.

* UnfortunateImplications: Is your marriage failing? Probably because you're not a Christian. Christians certainly don't have marital problems of any kind.
** The message is "Marriage is a sacred covenant to Christians, and marriages fall apart because they were not entered into with that in mind, or both partners have not put effort into building a lasting bond."
